Destination: Sydney, AustraliaMonday, May 20, 2013
My parents are going to Sydney next weekend to celebrate (early) their 25th wedding anniversary.
Dad, Mum, here are a few suggestions for you:
- Getting into/out of town:
It's really easy to take the trains. Don't worry.
- Circular Quay:
From here you can go to the Opera House and the Royal Botanical Gardens on one side, and the Harbour Bridge and the Rocks on the other. You can also take a ferry to the Taronga Park Zoo here.
All good places to go and see.
|At the Zoo, you get to see the animals really up close. This is a wallaby, not a roo.|
- Try some Kangaroo meat:
I keep telling you, Kangaroo meat is really nice. Though I am not a very meat loving person, I am all for trying new foods, and one of the reasons I went to Australia the first time was to try their unique dishes. Unfortunately I was not able to try the crocodiles at the time, but I fell in love with the Kangaroo steak with cranberry sauce on the side, on our second night in Darling Harbour.
|It may have been a long day touring around in the humid drizzling Summer weather...|
- Bondi beach:
Dad might not like the crowd. Mum might not want to take a dip in the waters. But it is Sydney, and it is Bondi. Take the bus.
- Government House:
For some historical architecture admiration, take this free guided tour in the Royal Botanical Gardens, open 7 days 10.30am-3pm
- Free wi-fi:
This is particularly important to my mother, who cannot live without being connected; she is even worse than me! Just pop into any of the nearby McDos or Starbucks, which will be your easiest bet.
